Welcome to our page! We are Jacob and Taylor Heflin, owners and operators of The 260 Volleyball, and we are glad you're here.

Our story starts in 2016, when we met while both serving in the United States Army. We quickly fell in love and welcomed our first child, Madison, into the world in 2018. Taylor left the Army and became a stay-at-home-mom in 2019, while Jacob moved the family to his hometown, Fort Wayne, for Army recruiting. We tied the knot in May of 2019 in a small ceremony with family and friends.

Jacob was introduced to recreational volleyball in early 2020, and we welcomed our son, Preston, later that year. Jacob missed spending so much time with his lovely wife during quarantine, that he invited Taylor to play in a league in 2021.

We continued to play together every chance we could and fell in love with the community. The way that volleyball was able to bring people together from all walks of life, really inspired us to become more involved. In 2022, Taylor took a position with a local sports club, organizing and running leagues, tournaments, and events, which left her with a lot of knowledge and experience.

We saw an opportunity to provide an affordable alternative volleyball experience to the Fort Wayne community during difficult economic times. This is how The 260 Volleyball came to fruition in 2023.
